Epic Ride Alert! We’re headed to Santa Cruz!
Join us challenging and fun 2-day camp in the mountains just east of Santa Cruz.
This camp is designed for the enthusiast rider or avid racer that is looking to build up and clean up their ‘toolbox’ of mountain bike skills in order to handle a variety of terrain at speed.
We will blend an in-depth version of our traditional Intermediate / Advanced skills training with coached riding sessions.

*We reserve the right to make changes to the schedule.
After camp, you will see an immediate improvement in your riding and will have a boost in confidence on technical trails. You will be able to tackle rougher terrain and trickier corners with greater control and flow through single track, switchbacks, and berms with far more speed and efficiency.
You can think of our camps as an awesome opportunity for what we like to call a “traincation”—a fun-filled vacation in which you get to spend most of your time doing what you like to do most—ride your mtb.
